The Eagle at Rancho San Ramon Community Park
In the fall of 2018, the City of San Ramon commissioned nationally recognized artist Brian Keith to create a 13’ bronze sculpture of an eagle at Rancho San Ramon Park and provided start-up funding to begin the project. The San Ramon Arts Foundation is honored to have been selected to partner and assist with helping to bring this amazing piece of art to the Community of San Ramon.
The Eagle, as conceived by the artist, is posed in a majestic protection stance, bridging old and new communities in San Ramon, honoring the City’s commitment to freedom, open space and natural wild life.
Once completed, the San Ramon Eagle will be the largest bronze eagle in the State of California – a unifying figure and centerpiece for public events, patriotic remembrances and community gatherings.
The San Ramon Valley is one of the most desirable places to live in the Bay Area because of its scenic beauty, suburban charm, excellent schools and proximity to major employment centers. The scenic site at Rancho San Ramon Community Park is the centerpiece of the new community in the Dougherty Valley, offering meeting spaces, a sports complex, and a children’s water park.
Two eagle’s nests were recently spotted in their natural habitat up the trail from site where the sculpted eagle will be placed. Thousands of individuals and families will visit the sculpture annually.
